2019 April

Club Centenary Day

Tuesday 30th April marked the actual celebrations of Braintree Bowling Club’s Centenary Day.  Past, present and new members, numbering over 100, gathered at the club for an afternoon of competitive club member bowls, followed by an enjoyable wine and cheese evening.

During the early evening festivities, three life members - Anne Beale, Una Gill and Malcolm Stark, unfurled and hoisted the newly purchased Centenary flag.  This event marks another historical legacy which will be handed down from present members to future participants of bowls at the Club.

The Club will now be focussing on some very prestigious games throughout the season, with a visiting Bowls England team booked to play in June.  There will also be several County Teams and Executives also visiting the club during the season, to celebrate this momentous year.
